About PCVRnews

PCVRNews.com consolidates the latest and most relevant Virtual Reality news individually selected from dozens of sources into one website and provides unique reviews of Virtual Reality games and technology.

Brought to you by:

An alternate reality enthusiast that has liked Virtual Reality since playing Dactyl Nightmare in an arcade in the early 1990s. It’s true, I bought a Nintendo Virtual Boy and although extremely disappointed I still had hope for VR because of reading about the prototypes of the Sega VR and the Atari Jaguar VR. Later on I ended up with an Forte VFX-1 which started to show the potential for the technology but was obviously not quite ready for prime time yet. I played around with phone VR for a while but still wanted something more immersive. Fast forward to the present with all the excellent VR options available and I remain very excited about how far it all has come along.

Why:

I wanted to make a VR news aggregation site that only had big news on it. I have found that there is a lot of duplication between technical and VR websites on their VR information, a lot of click-bait VR articles, and a lot of articles with just a couple quotes that are ultimately just indirect links to the real story. I’m already reading all the news I can find anyways and I always appreciate good aggregation of news for the sake of efficiency. I also like writing about my own VR gear and games so I just bring the best of it all into one location.

What:

I’m currently running a computer I built from scratch with:

intel-i7 Intel i7 Processor (~$299 – Check Amazon Prices)
HTC Vive (~$799 – Check Amazon Prices)
Mid-range Graphics Card (~$449 – Check Amazon Prices)

This setup works great for me.

Finally:

You won’t see third-party ads on this website but I do use Amazon Affiliate Links throughout the website to help pay for the costs of running a website. The Amazon links are based on your location so for example a US visitor with see the US Amazon product and a UK visitor will see the UK Amazon product. It doesn’t make the product cost more to use these links but if something is purchased then I get a very small percentage of the sale. I have been shopping at Amazon.com for a long time and found them to be a great store.

Please feel free to post comments and opinions, but due to spammers if there is a link in the comment it will have to be approved. Other than that I have commenting set up with the easiest options I have available to make it as simple as possible to make for a more engaging site.

Enjoy!
